In Jordan, Turquoise Mountain is collaborating with some of the most skilled artisans working in different craft disciplines, including mother of pearl inlay, wood mosaic, and metalwork, to design and produce a range of products. Furthermore, they foster apprenticeship programs designed to restore traditional crafts with a focus on woodworking, silversmithing and embroidery. Lastly, they conduct cultural heritage activities for children and youth across the country. Turquoise Mountain’s home in Jordan is located in Jabal Amman in a building dating from the 1940’s.
